A backyard pergola can create a great spot for entertaining and relaxing.

A backyard pergola can be an excellent addition that provides instant privacy, shade, and luxury. It can be used to designate dining areas and help create a picturesque scene in your garden. If you believe that a backyard pergola may suit your home, read on to learn more about the numerous ways you can enjoy a new pergola from Carroll Architectural Shade. 

Outdoor Dining and Entertaining Space

A custom backyard pergola provides a wonderful space for your family and friends to socialize when outside. The pergola creates a shady space under which you can place your outdoor dining table and chairs or comfy outdoor couches and games. People will love to gather under your pergola and spend time together. 

Poolside Lounging

Instead of investing in umbrellas for shading any poolside chairs you have, you can invest in a pergola to create an excellent space for poolside lounging. Swimmers can get out of the pool and immediately lounge nearby, enjoying the summer weather. Or, parents can relax under the pergola while keeping an eye on their kids playing in the pool.

Garden Beauty 

You can use your pergola to create a unique space within your garden. You may use the pergola to shade your gardening or landscaping tools or place a work table for pots and seedlings under the shade product. Alternatively, you may use the space to place a few benches on which family members can stop and smell the flowers. 

Extend to the Outdoors

Modern homes that allow you to move indoors and outdoors seamlessly are increasingly trendy. You can continue the natural flow of your home by adding a backyard pergola to your home exterior. This can provide a natural space for guests to visit when they are entertained in your home. 


If you have a deck, you may not want all of it shaded. If you want to only create a specific space for shaded lounging, you may add a pergola to your deck for a more customized outdoor experience. 

No matter where you place your new pergola, you may also add hanging plants or lights to further customize your shade product and create a little oasis in your backyard.
